personally I think that Steve Smith will have a better career, because he runs precise routes, has really reliable hands, and while some people say his 40 time doesn't represent his speed reliably I believe that it is spot on, because while at USC he always found his way behind the defense and made some amazing catches. This isn't to say that Craig Davis will have an unsuccessful career, because I believe that he has the same abilities, just he will require a little more time to become successful.
That's another thing that Craig Davis shares with Steve Smith.
I agree, and I think because he'll see so much of the field in such a succesful system within the NFL Craig Davis will be the better reciever out of the two.
San Diego still reached.
SD needed a wide receiver. Who else could they get at that position? Dwayne Jarret? We already have two of those types of receiver in Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd.
I suppose we could have picked Weddle, but there's no guarantee that Davis would have been there at the end of the second round. I think I heard that Indy was high on him, which makes sense since they did end up picking Gonzales two rounds after our pick. So it's not a reach if SD got Davis before the other team did.
Steve Smith for me, rather easily. I had him as a 40-45 range talent, and Davis as a 60-65 talent. I'll take Steve Smith's crisp route running, great hands, ability to find holes in defense, and speed over Craig Davis' big play ability any day. Davis was extremely overdrafted and I was truly shocked to see someone use a 1st rounder on him.
If you had asked this question before the draft, everyone would have said Steve Smith. Now, because Craig Davis got drafted 30th overall, alot of people are showing support for him. I'm not buying into it, and I still firmly believe he was the worst pick of the 1st round, and one of the worst of the entire draft.
